Discovery Day is an outreach event designed to educate the public about the mineral exploration industry and build awareness about the importance of minerals and metals in our everyday lives. Bring the whole family down to experience the intrigue and excitement of our industry, with interactive and educational displays that will engage both adults and children.

  • Equity Exploration: Curious about what a day exploring for minerals looks like? We will have a mock-up exploration camp including a canvas tent, sleeping cot and other field gear, set up by Equity Exploration.
  • Below BC: Visit the Below BC Booth and learn about the local geology of BC with our hands on mineral, rock and fossil collection.
  • Moon Patrol VR: Experience the latest technological innovations in the mineral exploration and mining industry – fly over a mine site and go underground with Moon Patrol VR’s virtual reality experience!
  • Geological Survey of Canada: Learn about our national mineral resources and natural hazards from Canada’s oldest scientific agency, the Geological Survey of Canada. See how ground movement caused by earthquakes are measured with a demonstration seismometer.
  • Yukon Dan: Have you ever wondered how to turn a pile of dirt into a pile of gold? Learn the trade secrets from a professional, award-winning gold panner, Yukon Dan, who will show you how to pan for gold in minutes.
